    I'm so frustrated right now. I just got my Lumia 710 this past Monday. I love the simplicity of it. Anyway, any apps I download functions well. but its the games that never work. All, but Zombie Squish, failed to open, which caused the apps to not open. Is this a Windows Phone hazing ritual it something to just test my patience?

    Hey Skaltnerd Welcome to WPCentral!!! :)

    that seems like a weird problem, I know that some apps/games are buggy and have problems , but out of the 1000+ aps/games ive downloaded I've only had a handful actually crash my phone or simply not work.

    What I would try to do , is uninstall ALL the apps/games, Then re-install them one at a time, this will allow you to test each app to see if a particular one is causing the problems.

    its never a good idea to install allot of app/games in a short period of time, even doh you might be exited about your new phone :P

    it is possible your phone is defective as well, worst case just return to the store to exchange it.

    I would first try to do a *HARD RESET *

    1. settings
    2. About
    3. Reset your phone ( at the very bottom )

    see if that works!

    also for more information make sure to check out: WindowsPhone: Getting started!

    Yea, I did the hard reset yesterday to no avail. Its games that crash, not regular apps. I want to play games and coming from a Blackberry 9780, that's a big deal.

    UPDATE: Turns out the games I've been downloading that have been crashing are the ones that are XBOX Live games. I don't know what the issue is, though. /shrug

    Take the phone back and get a replacement. Are you able to do that?
